As many of you know, a portion of our shelter budget comes from the City of Chicago’s Department of Family and Support Services. We are experiencing a slowdown in the contract process and it is having an effect on our program budget. Due to the delay, we are experiencing an ever tightening operating budget. We need a boost to get us through this anticipated delay. Please consider contributing to this very urgent and current need. We appreciate whatever you can give.
Providing shelter is important and this image reflects that. What you don’t see in this photo is two people sleeping behind the plywood structure, one of them requiring a wheelchair for mobility. It shouldn’t be this way. Shelters are a critical part of breaking the chain of homelessness. Support CCO’s shelter programs by clicking on the Donate button above.
You might be asking yourself what is Giving Tuesday? We’ve had Thanksgiving Day, Black Friday and Cyber Monday but a new tradition has begun, Giving Tuesday. The intention behind Giving Tuesday is to bring the needs of others into focus after a holiday weekend that has consuming at it’s core.
Will you consider giving to the work of CCO this Giving Tuesday? Your donation will insure that we can provide shelter and supportive services to everyone who comes through our doors.
